Security professionals are a smart, resilient group. Whether it is dealing with the constant barrage of threats from hackers, software vulnerabilities, privacy concerns, and compliance activities, security professionals are generally in a constant state of learning from on the job experience, technical books, journals, and conferences. However, I have often wondered how many security professionals have an opportunity to reach the C Suite. Certainly, the CISO position has increased in importance and relevance over the last several years, but I am not sure it is a path to the CEO role. There is also no generally accepted reporting structure for the CISO – is this a technical position reporting to the CIO, a financial position reporting to the CFO, or a strategic position with a line to the Board?
